“The place to go for pizza in this area!”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

From the outside this place is nothing to speak about, but, the pizza and pretty much all the food we've tried there, is really great!

“No Service”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

We had heard some good things about San Vito so we decided to try it on Friday evening 9/28. We got there about 6:30PM. We went in and no one greeted us; some nice soul at a table said that we should just find a seat and wait. We did that and waited about 10 minutes, finally someone came, gave us menus and apologized for the delay. The waitress came within 5 min and took our order and promptly returned with our drinks. I don't know what happened after that - the place was busy, but did not seem over crowded. 55 minutes later, believe it or not, we still had not received our food order or even a visit from the waitstaff. No explanation, no fresh drinks, no contact at all. We finally left and will not return. Perhaps the food is great but the service this night was horrendous.

“DON'T be fooled by the reviews”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

We tried this place based on the wonderful reviews we read online. Let's just say we don't share those same thoughts. We arrived to what seemed pretty accurate to what we read a very strange location. We walked in no one addressed us from the staff we had someone from a table tell us we were to seat ourselves. We sat down and our waitress came on over seemed not so bad. She came took our order.There were two drunken guys a couple tables over that apparently had her attention. When those guys left she followed them out. She was gone quite awhile came back in and the walked out the door on her cell phone. Very unprofessional. Needless to say 35 minutes later we still had no food! When our food finally arrived we were told she would be back with some bread. Still waiting on the bread at the moment. The food was mediocre.In my opinion not worth the price. The service was just awful! That waitress later advise me that she was the manager when I asked to speak to someone to address the issues I had with our visit. Basically the only way I would recommend anyone eating here is if they could careless about service, want to over pay and if you don't like to breath ( the place smelled of old books and I couldn't breath the entire time I was there.) I only rated it poor rather than terrible because the food wasn't awful just not great.

“AWESOME service and NY style pizza!”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

We had a accidental mix up on our order and San Vito's staff rectified it COMPLETELY! We are very happy with their service and their pizza is just like NY style pizza! If there is just one thing that we would tell other individuals who are either visiting here or that are looking for that "Up North" style pizza is that "San Vito Restaurant is a must go pizzeria if you are in the mood for a true NY style pizza here in Florida you won't be disappointed!"...
